Diolch yn fawr Tabby Tom am y croeso! Ti'n gallu siarad Cymraeg - gwych! (Sorry to the rest of you who don't understand Welsh - I've just said thanks for the welcome and that it's nice to see someone else who understands Welsh.)
Also, many thanks to you too, Quiz Beagle!

Welcome mwgmochyn, I don't know Welsh but do know Mochyn as we have one here as well. Now I just need to know what sort of pig you are!

Hi Satguru,
Many thanks for your welcome!
I don't understand how you can know what "mochyn" means in English - that's a very strange word to know!
I'm not actually a pig obviously, I just chose that name because at the time of registering, I happened to be drinking coffee from my favourite mug which has a picture of a pig on it!

Hi MadMags,
It's very nice to have a warm welcome from Costa Rica (it makes a change from England - no offence!). Cheers!

Hello and welcome from me too, mgwmochyn! I did a double take when I saw another mochyn on here.

Hiya jordandog,
Many thanks for the welcome - it's much appreciated. What do you mean another mochyn - are there many of us?

Hello mwgmochyn! I don't speak a word of Welsh but I am also a housewife (for now anyway) who loves dogs (have an Olde English Bulldogge) and playing on the computer, so we have a few things in common anyway! Welcome to the forums, I am sure you will enjoy your time here!

Hiya Roofoo, It's lovely to hear from people from so far away!
My dog's a "labradinger" - half labrador, half Welsh springer spaniel - 11 months old. He's as mad as a bag of spanners, but adorable all the same! He's black with chocolate brown eyes, and his name's Macsen.
Many thanks to you, too, for the welcome message.

Hiya Callum, Many thanks for your message, it's nice to talk to another newbie too!
Yes, Anglesey is a fantastic place to live, I'm very lucky really - you can see the Snowdon mountains from our back door (when it's not raining!). It's nice that you have a connection with Wales, even if it's through your big sister! You were very close with the spelling, well done - it's Aberystwyth, which is also a beautiful place. I stayed there once at an hotel by the sea, it was a very calming, relaxing place. We'll probably speak again soon -see ya!

"What do you mean another mochyn - are there many of us?"
No, as far as I know there is just one other, he's been a member for 5+ years, and his name on here is simply 'mochyn'. It was just very odd to see it come up again. (I could have had some fun and told you there was an entire pigsty here... )

Hi, jordandog - ah, I see! So this other "mochyn" must be Welsh as well, then, I presume?

Hello, romeomikegolf, thanks for that -what d'you mean by the right side, as in right/left or the best side? Hmmmm...
Or maybe right/wrong?!
